Our lives are full of things that go. Some of our vehicles are slow like a wagon which “rolls on the sidewalk,” while others, like a plane, “soars in the sky” at great speeds. Children have a fascination for machines that move, and this charming board book looks at some of the vehicles that move us from place to place.

   Each spread explores one kind of vehicle, and in every one we see a child (or children) and an animal or two. Often the animal is a funny looking dog who wears round glasses.

   The book wraps up by asking us, “How fast can you go?” Children will surely have fun working this out for themselves.
